Michell Rosamonte

Biography

Michell Rosamonte was born in Sao Tome and Principe, and has lived and worked in Portugal, France and Scotland. He currently lives and works in Edinburgh.

At the age of 25, Rosamonte is described as a talented emerging artist who has explored the female body, movements and expressions in impressive figurative and abstract watercolours drawings and paintings.
Since 2002, he has studied with several artists, from Portugal, Brazil, Senegal, Angola and Sao Tome and Príncipe, France and Scotland. Despite the multicultural influences, he has developed a unique style, where the movements and expressions are quickly captured in black and the use of red and yellow is frequent.
